When it comes to healthy skin, we know that proper vitamin intake is necessary. However, with more research on the role of vitamins on our dermal health, it has come to light that even topical application can go a long way in ensuring smooth and glowing skin. One such vitamin is vitamin E, which is available in an oil form.
To begin with, vitamin E has powerful antioxidant properties. This is the main reason why using vitamin E for skin has multiple benefits, like:
Clearly, vitamin E can prove to be extremely beneficial when added to your skincare routine. Not only can it improve the appearance of your skin but also performs a preventive role to protect you from issues caused by exposure to sunlight, effects of pollution and ageing.
Here are 3 easy ways to use vitamin E for skin:
Adding vitamin E to your weekly face mask can add a natural glow to your skin, and ensure nourishment to help fight the damage caused by free radicals. Honestly, vitamin E is fairly versatile and can be added to any face mask, be it homemade or store-bought. However, we recommend adding it to a multani mitti and malai face pack. Multani mitti is known to be a powerful cleanser that will help your skin get rid of dirt and excess oil, while malai is renowned for its moisturising properties. Adding 5-8 drops of vitamin E oil to this cleansing and moisturising face pack will heal your skin, while adding a healthy glow.
The market is flooded with various serums for the protection of your skin, but all you need is a couple of drops of vitamin E to perform the function. A proven antioxidant, adding vitamin E as serum to your skincare routine will not only reduce instances of acne and give you a natural glow, but will also delay appearance of fine lines and reduce hyperpigmentation in the long run.
After applying toner to your face, take 4-5 drops of vitamin E on your fingertips and dab it on your face, as you do with other serums. Next, apply a moisturiser. We recommend using it as a part of your night time routine, because vitamin E can make the skin look oily.
Vitamin E, when added to a moisturiser, makes it more effective! The vitamin is known for its deeply hydrating properties. In fact, it can give your regular moisturiser an edge by enriching it with its antioxidant properties, which will not just brighten your face but will also ensure your skin stays smooth. We recommend adding 3-4 drops of vitamin E to your moisturiser every day after you’re done applying the toner and serum.
A couple of drops of vitamin E on a regular basis can ensure you have healthy and glowing skin!
